|I just recently bought a 2010 Elantra Touring and noticed the passenger's head restraint sits much further forward than the driver's to the point where it is uncomfortable to sit in the passenger seat with it installed. When I removed the headrests to have a look, they are identical except the passenger headrest's metal bars are coming from the back of the underside of the headrest while the driver's metal bars come from the middle (causing the passenger headrest to be futher forward). Are the two headrests supposed to be the same and I have a defective one? Or is there a reason they are different?|
|Thanks. I got it. It was in the forward most position, so it took a good push from behind to get it to spring back.|
It is really not very intuitive how to adjust the forward/back bit, as other post suggested, try giving it a shove from behind/in front, to get it to click to the other positions.
HOWEVER I found another design issue around my UK i30's front headrests: Even at furthest back position., they are exceptionally "forward" compared to other brands of car I've owned. Sometimes OH likes to have a nap in the passenger seat on long journeys and she does not find the (even furthest back) angle at all good for this compared to other cars. Safety feature? Not if passenger's head is lolling sideways (while in other cars it used to be, lolling straight BACK), it isn't.
